Minnesota Reading Corps:
This is a program that our preschoolers have access too. Each classroom has a tutor, reading corps member, to help support studentsí language and literacy skills in preparation for kindergarten. Tutors dedicate their time to provide embedded and explicit instruction to support the core curriculum throughout the daily routine and provide targeted small group and one-on-one support to children needing more intense supplemental instruction.
*Your child will have a purple “Star Bag”. Each day your child comes to school s/he will choose a book to borrow from our “library”. Please help your child to remember to keep the book in their Star Bag.
*Journal – There is a journal in your Star Bag. After you read with your child, you may journal together about what you read. The journal can look however you want –your child may draw pictures or write words with your help.
*Calendar – Each month you will get a reading calendar. There are tips/activities for each day. Color in the star when you complete an activity. At the end of the month, return the calendar. If you complete all the activities, your child will be entered into a drawing to win a book. There are also weekly QR stories available to scan - these are super fun for kids!
